The foundations and qualities of great science culture
Our vision for a great science culture spans both the quality of the science and the treatment of everyone involved.
There are three foundations:
- Scientific practice
- Participation in science
- Wellbeing and development
Spanning these three foundations are five qualities of a great science culture:
- Safe and supportive
- Ethical and responsible
- Open and collaborative
- Accessible and inclusive
Finally, recognition plays a critical role by incentivising behaviours that align with and foster a positive science culture.
Much of our ongoing work, such as our inclusion, diversity and accessibility work, our sustainable laboratories report, and our open access commitment, align with and help to advance our vision for a great science culture.
The next item on this agenda is a new Disability in the chemical sciences report, coming soon.
And we have even more exciting and ambitious initiatives coming in each of these areas, all working towards this common direction.
